Stories of Growing Up Gay in KL

Stamped Batik

Unlike myself, KH is quite casual about his sexuality in the workplace. He often tells me his coming out stories to random colleagues. And he has several sisters at the office. Just the other day, he introduced me to CP over lunch at Baba Nyonya by Sambal Chilli, Avenue K. The restaurant replaces Swensen's which was never popular at that location. We ordered some dishes-- Kapitan curry chicken, omelette, and sambal okra. Taste-wise it was quite good, but the price is a little on the high side for the portion that we got. Anyway, the star of the lunch was his colleague, not the food. He had plenty of stories to tell. An insight into the younger generation of gays. Good to hear that while he was in school, homosexuality wasn't an issue at all. The straight boys weren't threatened at all and seemed to love indulging in some sexual ambiguity as well. Perhaps, this is only true in the big cities. Such an interesting childhood he had with much relationship drama and sexual encounters. The lesson that he learned: Don't join the school band. LOL. All I have heard bodes well for future gay boys. Less repression. More acceptance. Does a world of good.

It's not like I tell everybody. Just a selected few. And those who are obviously gay.
